FloodWatch allows users to monitor rivers and streams throughout the United States. Add USGS gages to your favorites for quick monitoring of current gauge height, precipitation, and flood stage. By leveraging data from the US Geological Survey and National Weather Service, FloodWatch presents the most recent and historical river heights, precipitation totals, discharge, and flood stage data. Graphs are available to help you visualize the rise and fall of the river, precipitation, and streamflow. Note that only US Geological Survey gauges with real-time data capabilities are surfaced within the application; not all United States gauges are available. FloodWatch is also geared towards those with interests in or near flood plains. If your home or other interests have been flooded in the past or could be flooded in the future, FloodWatch allows you to easily keep an eye on any potential flooding issues.
Use to be great small advertisement bottom of screen, now full screen advertisement fir each point you are monitoring. Bye deleting app as soon as I save this review
No longer lists risk flood ranges: low, moderate, high. Please fix this.
Information on this app easily accessible via free apps and web sources WITHOUT ads hence the lack of need to buying this app. I understand there is no thing like a free lunch, static ads at the bottom of screen is fine. Ads that impede navigation like full page ads only shows that the developer is greedy and doesn’t care about the user interaction.
I really relied on this app to keep me updated on the flood stage because I live right on the creek. Hasn’t worked since September 11
This was a useful app at one time but the full screen ads have become so annoying as to make this app more trouble than it is worth. I would pay to remove ads but $7.99? That is far too expensive for what it provides. There is a competing app that offers the same graphs of more station parameters and it is only $1.99 for the ad-free version. That’s more realistic.
I can see the developer wants to make some money nothing wrong with that but I don’t even see a link to buy the ad free version anywhere. Why is a five star app but I’m giving it three now.
It was a great ap when it worked, so I gave three stars even though it no longer works. The update didn’t resolve the problem either. I cannot open- it kicks me out when I try to access the ap. When it worked it was a great ap for someone living along the water. Really hoping it gets fixed ASAP. Update: the recent update worked, thank you. Ap is working now. Thank you for the quick fix. 5- stars!
Still a great app but I kinda liked the old version better. Huge graphs equals more detail. You should still buy it.
I installed the new update then nothing worked. I contacted the developer who already knew what the problem was and was waiting for his fix approval from Apple. For anyone who may have experienced the same problem as I did just remove the old version then install the new one. Or, wait for the fix to arrive then install that update. It’s a good program to have when the river is rising. Thanks.
I tapped the “+” symbol to add a gauge but none appeared on the map. I had to pinch or pan the map to get the markers/gauges to appear. I’d recommend showing gauges on initial load, or at least show gauges on the map after a 1 second delay. Data shows current conditions. It would be fantastic if data included average conditions or trends. E.g. I know the Cumberland River is 27ft height right now. How does that compare to this time last year? What is the average height during the year?
